Said he learned it from Lomachenko, looks really hard.
that does look really hard.
is it useful though? i am thinking its good for hand eye coordination and reflexes but doesn't this compromise form?
That's pretty cool! I'm gonna learn this just so I can show off at parties
It would only compromise form for very very difficult fighters (to train), ones who can't separate something that has a function that is indirect, from something that is directly applicable. Most fighters aren't THAT dumb.
Though I'm not sure why every time a video comes out that shows another technique of skill development, the maker of the video, or some viewers automatically feel that only one or two people in the World do it (the reaction of the videographer). If Alexander learned it from Lomanchenko (Father), then anyone who was ever under Lomanchenko or influenced by him likely did it as well. Same with the Reballdo, that's been around for a few decades now.
Things like this become applicable in odd places. A few of the other trainers here at Tocco's laughed at the Reballdo when I started using it with all of my guys, then in a particular few sparring sessions, my guys' opponents would be against the ropes and moving their upper-bodies. They still got hit.
The videographer is Eli Seckbach who is a grade A idiot.
He does get good coverage but someone would think he personally would have learned something about boxing already.
Nvm thought this was a different video / drill
A lot of people echo similar sentiments, though. Like everyone thought I got the Reballdo idea from Lomanchenko, and then someone else told me that Kostay Tszyu INVENTED it.
Well it does not matter who invents what as long as there is people who know how to use them, when to use it, how often to do it, does it benefit their fighter etc.
I take it you are one of the people who can see if such excercise will benefit a spesific fighter.
Good to know you found good use for the Reballdo for your fighters!
I think it does matter who invented them, though. Those are the guys with the ideas.
Good point :icon_chee
I gave this a quick go last night. It was surprisingly hard to keep the ball going.
I was expecting to see someone throw tennis balls at him, I've seen Kaoklai do that.
That does look hard. I've gotta try that out.
Is that a regular tennis ball? Looks cool i want to try it now.
hey mr. sinister where did you buy the reballdo from and how much? looks intereesting
You can do it by yourself. Tennisball, cord + cap/headband and some DIY attitude.
Katie Taylor uses the Rebaldo technique, so I'm assuming lots of the Irish Olympic squad also do. Innovative techniques are widespread these days because of the internet. The days of the secret guru training are gone. That tennis ball drill looks fun, must try it
